Our Story

Capstone On-Campus Management (COCM), with headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, is a group of student housing professionals focused exclusively on the management of housing communities owned by non-profits and/or highly affiliated with a university.  100% of the communities in our portfolio are located on-campus, with active university participation.

Our management services range from turn-key to custom arrangements in which we share roles and responsibilities with our university client (shared governance).  We also offer a consulting service called Fresh Eyes, which helps universities position their campus housing program to enhance student success, recruitment, and retention.

We believe our owners, clients, and residents should expect and receive remarkable services.  Our commitment to this level of service has resulted in great outcomes for our campus partners:  improved operations / greater affordability to the students, housing programs that enhance recruitment and retention, and increased student satisfaction. 

Since we began in 2003, we have continued to grow:  from 2,186 student residents at three campuses, to our current 34,119 residents at 38 campuses.
